Red Rocks Reflections, February 2018

What’s on the Principal’s desk in February? Here are three quick highlights:

Student instruction just passed the mid-year point. I am actively working with teachers on specific student progress needs. We want all of our kids making strong gains for the year, and this is a rich time of instructional adjustments prior to parent conferences in March.

Parent survey results were just sent to the principals. You talked, now we listen. I am reviewing survey trends over the past three years to identify areas of growth or decline, as well as reviewing your comments. Look for survey results to be shared in March Raccoon News and during our monthly SAC meeting (2nd Tuesday of the month), as well as the principal coffee on February 23.

What is our budget for 2018-19? How many students will we have? Enrollment is in full swing and our team is solidifying our enrollment base that ensures we can fund our staff, while also monitoring class size. Interested in hearing more? Consider the principal coffee on February 23, monthly SAC meetings, or look for updates in this newsletter.

In closing, Red Rocks Raccoons, you are “my Valentine!” Each day I get the privilege of being your principal, and I feel the love you share with our community. It is truly a gift. Let’s enjoy the season of sharing friendship and love during February!  Go Raccoons! --Mr. Isaac
